If your child is not very young, teaching and chanting mantras can help you develop a strong bonding with your child. It helps find inner strength and stability as well.

Mantras sooth minds and this helps children focus on whatever they do and develop concentration. No matter what state of mind your child is in at present, you can help her calm down by few simple steps. This will enhance your child’s acceptance and make her strong from within.

3. Reduces Conflicts Between Siblings and Friends

Even though surprising, you can check this out with your own kids. If two of them are fighting, just stop them and ask them to take a deep breath and chant any small shloka for peace together. They will not just have peace, but also feel connected.

4. Kids Have Proper Understanding of Life

Understanding life and existence will never let your child feel depressed or pull her moral down. This will automatically increase her fighting spirit.

5. Feeling of Connectivity is Generated

Chanting mantras helps children have calm minds and remind them of who they are. They get connected to holiness and learn about their divine self as well.

How to Get the Maximum Benefit?

Let your child understand that mantra is not something you repeatedly say. It has its effect only when you strive to become that. This means that you need to feel it from inside and then chant the words or lines so that you get the maximum benefit. Therefore, approaching mantras with awareness is extremely important.

Parents should keep in mind that they should only teach their children when they are good at it. So, first research well and learn the mantras, their effects, their way of expressing and their benefits. Make sure you explain things to your child also before you start teaching her. Without having the awareness, chanting of mantras is just repeating words which is of no use and will not benefit your child in any way. Experts are of the opinion that this can cause damage instead.

A lot of distortions have happened with years and so, chanting mantras in the right form has become a challenge. Remember, while chanting mantras sound is more important than meaning. A mantra is not only beautiful and appealing but also it is very much effective.
